Click 'Spec Sheet' for available configurations/part#


The Manual Mini Polarization Controller is based on a novel design featuring ultra-compact size, low loss, and high extinction. It contains three rotatable waveplates between a pair of collimators to provide all possible polarization states. Rotation is accomplished by using a screwdriver and locking in position via a magnet. It is designed for modules or systems with limited space.

1240nm to 1620nm is a standard operation band. Other wavelength bands can also be made with special orders
